Football Index Tips for 2019 – Best Players in La Liga

Football Index Tips for 2019 – Best Players in La Liga

As you may have read, La Liga Expert started a Football Index Portfolio earlier in the month and in this post we will explain some of the reasoning behind the Spanish-based players we chose. There will also be a few other Football Index tips with players we expect to be big in 2019 and beyond

To be clear, we don’t claim to be the definitive voice of knowledge on the platform or anything like that. Despite reading up on it fairly extensively, these tips are primarily based on our knowledge of La Liga not years of experience of trading on Football Index. They are players we think are currently undervalued or have the potential to really develop over the coming years, potentially earning moves to bigger clubs.

Football Index Tips – Best La Liga Goalkeepers

Yassine Bounou

Current Ranking – 2371 (Squad Player)
Current Price – £0.38
Age – 27
Club – Girona
WhoScored Rating 2018/19 La Liga Season So Far – 6.97

Goalkeepers don’t tend to feature too heavily on the platform so we’ve only picked one in our initial portfolio and that’s Girona’s Yassine Bounou. Apart from the rockstar name (he prefers the spelling Bono), he has also been putting in some rockstar performances in La Liga this term. He produced some extraordinary saves as an injury-ravaged Girona won at Valencia in November having done something similar in a 0-0 draw at Sociedad weeks earlier. At 27, he is still young for a keeper and at 6 Foot 4 Inches tall, he is both a commanding keeper and excellent shop-stopper. We are banking on Bono’s price going to a place called vertigo in the not too distant future.

Football Index Experiment – Starting Portfolio

Football Index Experiment – Starting Portfolio

We’ve started 2019 with a bit of a new project as we look to turn La Liga knowledge into cash on Football Index. Scroll down for our starting £500 portfolio and also a football index code, which will allow you to get started in what is initially a risk-free setting. It is though also worth reading up and truly understanding the platform before you start making larger investments and this page should help with that.

What is Football Index?

Football Index has been described as a mixture of fantasy football and sports betting. While there is some truth to that, we prefer the description that you will find on the site itself. Football Index is essentially ‘the football stockmarket’, at least in the countries where they have a licence to operate. Currently you can use the platform in the UK, Ireland, Sweden and Canada but we anticipate many more countries will be added to that list soon.

Football Index Player List

Instead of betting on the outcome of matches, you are investing in players with a wide range to choose from. Almost every player in Europe’s top five leagues can be found with 2940 in total at the time of writing and more coming soon via Football Index’s IPO’s (Initial Player Offerings). Essentially you buy shares AKA ‘futures’ in players in the belief that their value will rise with time, hopefully enabling you to sell them on for a profit.

Is it really Gambling or Investing?

There is still an extent of gambling and risk, as there is with any form of investment but unlike regular football bets, you cannot really lose your stake unless the player retires and is withdrawn from the platform altogether (or you fail to sell your shares within the maximum 3 year time-frame). Their value may be increase or decrease with time but almost every player on the game has increased in value over the past two years, due to more and more people investing in the market as a whole.
